AP Game Recap

NEW YORK (AP) Maya Moore's life becomes a lot easier on offense when her Minnesota teammates are all scoring.

Moore scored 16 points to lead the balanced Lynx to a 90-71 victory over New York on Thursday night. All five of the Lynx starters were in double figures, with Lindsay Whalen and Sylvia Fowles each adding 12 points.

''When everyone gets involved and we have that balanced scoring it's a great thing for us,'' Moore said. ''We always feel better when we can play to our potential.''

New York (1-1) also may have lost point guard Brittany Boyd for a while after she injured Achilles in the fourth quarter. She will have an MRI on Friday.

''Whatever the details of the situation is. It's a business,'' said Tina Charles, who had just six points.
